What makes you say he may not have a jump shot? All indications point to him having a jump shot.

He's good in catch and shoot situations, not so much of the dribble. But he doesn't really need to shoot of the dribble at this stage of his career

I don't mean 3pt shot, that one is adequate - but he's either shooting the 3 or getting to the rim. I don't think I've seen him even attempting a mid range shot. To be more than just a 3+D guy, he will need to develop that part of the game. His struggles at the line indicate that it will take a bit though.

However, he does have a bit of a post game, he makes pretty smart decisions which points to a high natural BB IQ and he's okish from 3. For a 19 year old, I'd say his offensive game is more than adequate. He's no Tatum, but he's better than the average rookie. And offense was supposed to be his weakness ...

More about Ibaka and his knee...and Pascal putting up some nice numbers.

 Fri, Nov 17

Serge Ibaka (swollen left knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Knicks.

Advice: Ibaka has been experiencing soreness since banging his knee on Nov. 12 vs. Boston. He did play through the pain against the Pelicans and Rockets, but he didn't look right. With Ibaka sitting this one out, Paskal Siakam is worth a look if you need short-term help with averages of 14.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals in three fill-in starts, while we should see more of OG Anunoby, and C.J. Miles as well.

Second post and you're calling someone a "pinhead" ?  You might be at the wrong forum.

What a fine job Casey and staff has done changing the system - everyone getting an opportunity to contribute and touch the ball and voila! - more apg and a stronger offense overall.  Players buying in has been fantastic as well.  Only wish is that the first unit would involve the bigs a little more on offense like the 2nd unit players do when they play with him.  The bigs - esp JV -  can be decent passers when they're more involved.

Thanks for the info. It definitely felt like something was up. That explains him burying his head in a towel in one of those games. I thought maybe he was sick.

It's pretty good that he fought through things for a bit, but I really look forward to seeing him moving well. Seeing JV with Pascal and OG last night really made me want to see Serge inserted into that lineup for JV. So much switchability, especially if Kyle keeps showing what he can do vs bigs now and then.

He's hit midrange shots no problem. He hit one from the baseline in the first quarter last night. The free throws concerned me some, but then he nailed two under huge pressure at the end of the Celtics game. It looks mostly like the usual early struggle common with rooks.

Free throws are about getting a routine down and gaining confidence. The mechanics are different. The mental approach is different. It has very little to do with having a jumper or not. Lebron struggled at the line last season, but he never had a better jumper.
